Kenworth to showcase construction models at World of Concrete


Ready mix operators and other construction segment businesses can see Kenworth’s 2008 model vocational trucks at the annual World of Concrete Show from Jan. 22-26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Kenworth’s booth (No. N2337) will feature four 2008 models, including a T800 short hood equipped with a loader crane; T800 wide-hood heavy hauler; W900S mixer; and T300 dump truck.

This year is expected to be a healthy one for the construction market, says Gary Moore, assistant general manager of marketing and sales for Kirkland, Wash.-based Kenworth. “Construction spending is expected to remain strong in 2007, particularly in the commercial sectors,” he says.

“There’s been a healthy amount of store construction, new hotel projects are up substantially, electric utility construction is on track for a large increase, and increases in highway construction projects are expected from the multi-year federal transportation bill,” Moore says. “Construction segment contractors and ready mix operators running durable Kenworth trucks engineered to the customer’s specific application will be in a great position to take advantage of those opportunities.”
